Dear Mr Colman . Ronald . Ronnie, if I may be so bold. I have been an avid admirer for many years now. I was born a year after your untimely passing. How I wish we had met. Your last role was the 'Spirit of Man' you were ideally cast and that is how I think of you now. For all those who visit this page do please join the Ronald Colman Appreciation Society on Facebook if you have not already, we are running a campaign to get 'Lost Horizon' registered at the National Film Registry, Library of Congress.

Blessed 58th Anniversary in Heaven Ronnie, WHERE ELSE could you possibly be?
As the years go by, alas, fewer and fewer people remember and appreciate the magic of his screen persona. I mention Colman and his films and that special WONDER and CAPTIVATION of his performances EVERY CHANCE I get! Like an itinerant disciple, I remind "older people" and introduce the "young folk" about Colman. Those who "look him up" on the internet and catch a movie of his, are NEVER disappointed! With FONDNESS and REMEMBRANCE.

I am an unabashed fan of the man, his
voice, his movies, and his acting repertoire! He acted- emotion brought
out and made visible through ACTION.
As I watch his movies, Colman seems to always find a perfect action and nuance for the meaning of the scene. I mean, has anyone else realized the power of a perhaps 10-second action of him in "Arrowsmith" when he enters his dead wife's closet and sinks with grief into her dresses? I've never seen a more powerful short emotive bit. Similar reaction to death scene of Cigarette in "Under Two Flags" Fantastic! Never never tire of watching his films, silent or talkie. Anybody out there working to find intact any "missing" silents?

It has just struck Midnight…May 19th, now 57 years since Ronald Colman's death at what now seems to be
the relatively young age of 67!
It is with some astonishment that I find myself watching his films, admiring him still, and then realizing that I am now older than he was when he starred in many of the classic films that
I love so well: Michael "Beau" Geste, Hugh "Bulldog"
Drummond, Robert Clive, Sydney Carton, Robert Conway, Francois Villon, Dick Heldar, Prof. Michael Lightcap, Charles Rainier, etc. OMG, I'm even older than Colman was when he played brainiac Beauregard Bottomley in the delightful and waayy ahead of its time CHAMPAGNE for CAESAR!
I miss him without ever having known him. What a wonderful thing, that his charm, voice, manners and acting "magic" has become an abiding part of me and indeed a part of the many fans still, throughout the world.
Thank you, God or the Fates or the Muses for giving
us Ronald Colman. I remember a line from John Huston, as he eulogized Humphrey Bogart "There will never be another like him"…Well, the same must be said for Ronnie Colman.
Born February 9th, 1891 and listed in the British Census as Roland Charles Colman! Somewhere along the way, letters were interchanged or an innocent typo or whatever the case, and he "became" Ronald Charles Colman. Left us May 19th, 1958…still relatively young, and all too soon! Happily the Magic lives on and
Colman continues to move and inspire us still!

I love this web site. Comments here are exactly how I feel. Have been a classic movie fan since elementary school and I recorded Mr. Colman's voice reel to reel tape, so I go back a ways!
